Wednesday, January 22nd saw two things on Maui: the filming of Point Break 2 and absolutely huge conditions out at Jaws.

A few weeks ago, I wrote an open letter to Gerard Butler about my qualms about a Point Break remake. If there is any footage of something like this in that film, I take it all back. And although I love that Butler took a few on the head at Pillar Point for the filming of Chasing Mavericks, I hope to God he didn’t venture anywhere near these conditions.

Although towing has been out of the spotlight lately, there are times when it really is spectacular. And this is most definitely  one of those times.

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for the purists who are willing to sit in the line-up braving being caught inside as mountains of water march in, then swing around and paddle into gut wrenching drops and aim for the shoulder on their 10 footers. However, the feeling of being whipped in and then riding 40 / 50 / 60 foot faces on a manoeuvrable 6’0 board must be an incredible adrenaline rush!

    Yaaaawn, tow-surfing… feels like cheating after watching Twiggy’s paddle-in heroics at Mavericks.
